Ciao a tutti! (Translation: Hello everybody!) How is life treating you so far? Life has been good to me lately, hehehe.

Today, I want to tell you about my experience on another VMV product which is called, "VMV FINE FINISH PORE MINIMISER". I mentioned to you before that I have combination to oily skin and if some people like the dewy-finish kind of makeup, I like my face to be matte at any cost! Like at any cost! I abhor sweating especially when I have makeup on.

According to VMV's website (here) this product is a shine controlling toner which lessens the look of pores. Hmmm.. let's see.

Where to Buy: VMV Store in Glorietta 4, LandMark, SM Stores

Php 580+ (VMV Stores)

More info:
  • This unique toner causes the cells around the skin's pores to expand slightly, allowing each pore to be constricted inward and reducing its visible size.
  • Helps to lessen pore visibility and control shine.
  • For Combination-to-Oily Skin Types.

Validated Hypoallergenic:
VH -76/76. 100% All-Types-Of-Fragrance-Free. 100% Dye-Phthalate-Paraben + Preservative-Free. Non-Comedogenic. Combination-to-Oily Skin Types. Usage + Patch-Tested. For Men, Women, Teens and younger (ages 9+).

Me Says:
  • I used this before I put some powder/ makeup before hitting work and I noticed that my pores were less visible (amazing!)
  • In some days, I was able to skip primer which is a must-have for oily-skinned ladies like me!
  • I noticed my face was matte for a decent 6-7 hours (indoor) and I only had to blot about once or twice with an oil-control film (goodness gracious!)
  • When used before bedtime, I wake up into a lesser shiny face, yey!
  • Can skip primer on some days
  • My face is not shiny, makeup stays on for hours
  • A little goes a long way; I guess I can finish the bottle in 1- 2 months
  • Acceptable smell (believe me I had the worst)
  • There is a slight tingling sensation (kinda like stretching your face by some forces you don't see, lol) however, in my honest opinion, this is how I knew the product was working.
  • Some ladies with combination skin might find this a little too drying (is there such a thing, hahaha!)

4.5 Lipsticks  (√)

Here is my mug shot (after  6-7 hours at work); I used the toner on this pic prior to my Max Factor Lasting  Performance foundation application set with powder (Maybelline All in One Cake in Sand Beige). Blotted about once (or twice, sorry I forgot) with an oil-control film but no powder retouch!

I plan to repurchase as soon as I am done with my stock. Unless I find another product which works, I am sticking to this.

  1. You're welcome. I used this just before I apply my primer to reduce my pore size. It does help, IMHO!
